In keeping with its tradition of platforming a staggeringly wide range of incredible musicians and instrumentalists, The Stoller Hall’s June schedule features performances from world-class pianists, critically adored young songwriters, cult heroes of the English folk scene and more.

Tirzah | Wed 22 Jun | 7.30pm | £16

After the breakneck ascent of her first album, Devotion, to cult status in music circles exasperated by the dominion of heavily manicured, digestible pop, London songwriter Tirzah plays The Stoller Hall on the tour of her latest project, Colourgrade. Described by Pitchfork as a ‘collection of porous, avant-garde love songs’, Tirzah’s second acclaimed record is a celebration of kinship, change and the wonder of daily life.

Tuesday Folk People: On Tour | Thu 23 Jun | 7pm | £17

Masterfully twanging their way from the 150,000 listener-strong Tuesday Folk People programme to the Stoller Hall stage, the brightest figures of English folk music cover the jaw-dropping breadth of sounds, styles and techniques in the scene on their brief summer tour. Featuring stalwart vocalist Bob Fox, young New Zealand duo Good Habits and many more, the evening promises to delight English folk enthusiasts of all preferences.

Candlelight: The Best of Joe Hisaishi | Fri 24 Jun | 6pm & 8.30pm | £35
